Disaster Declarations for Two Counties in Upper Peninsula
Michigan governor Rick Snyder has issued disaster declarations for two counties in the state's Upper Peninsula that suffered flooding damage due to heavy rains.
According to WILX-TV 10, orders from the governor will allow the National Guard to deploy to Houghton and Menominee counties to help with road repairs.
The heavy weekend rains have swelled waterways in the area that are washing away large chunks of concrete and asphalt, littering roads with debris. Some residents are using boats to get around.
Snyder's office says hundreds of homes, businesses and public facilities and infrastructure have been severely affected. Please click on the above link for more information.
